's erin burnett is going "outfront" tonight on a gruesome discovery. the body of a missing woman found inside a los angeles hotel water tank. erin joins me now live with a preview. what a crazy story, erin. >> and what's even crazier is how they found out about this. people who were staying at this hotel started complaining of low water pressure and funny tasting water. frightening. and when they went up to investigate the reason why, they found a body. we're going to tell you about this story and exactly how this could have happened. and also, what the link is between that body and the water that people were drinking in the hotel room and who the person was. we also have exclusive and new photos of reeva steenkamp, of course, the girlfriend of oscar pistorius, who was killed. these are some pretty amazing pictures of a man who had worked with her several times on photo shoots and they're pretty -- they're pretty beautiful. and in tonight's essay, we talk about the post office's new fashion foray with a yeah, pretty strong opinion on that one. see you guys at the top of the hour. >> as
. >> all right, erin, thanks. we are in windy and chilly chicago where president obama spoke today about the epidemic of teen violence gripping his home town. we're also going to be looking at the close encounter with a meteor that everyone is talking about that was literally earth-shaking, and later, we'll have the latest on the blade runner's emotional day in court, charged with premeditated murder in the death of his girlfriend. but we begin with breaking news in the mudeath of killer cop christopher dorner. just moments ago, another vital question was answered. the precise manner of dorner's death. randi kaye is joining us. she just got word of the situation. she's in las vegas. the big headline is dorner died from a single gunshot wound to the head. does it mean it was self-inflicted? >> it appears so, chris. they didn't see him fire the fatal shot, but all indications are it was self-inflicted. they are still investigating, of course, but you have to remember that cabin was on fire. so law enforcement wasn't anywhere near him. they had that armored vehicle that was pulling the wall
starts now. >>> erin, thanks. tonight only on 360, why if the disease will not kill you the medical bills might. even if you have insurance. we'll take you inside one patient's bill and show you what the health care industry does not want you to see lean line by line, charge by inflated charge down by the paper cup. that's $12, by the way. sound like nickel and diming? it could cost you tens of thousands of dollars. also, jesse jackson jr.'s road from congress to the courthouse. the possibility of a long stretch in prison. the campaign cash with the former democratic congressman took and what was bought with it boggles the mind. we'll tell you about that shortly. we begin, though, with a major development in the killing that has captivated and confounded millions of people around the world. it's captivated them because the shooting death of a glamorous model allegedly at the hands of perhaps the bravest olympic athlete many modern memory could not be more stirring or tragic in and of itself. it's confounding because each day brings more news that does not seem to establish in any clear di
icy to dull pain, hot to relax it away. power past pain. >>> erin burnett is going "outfront" with more on the cruise ship triumph and the first lawsuit filed. you knew this was coming. >> absolutely. it only took about 24 hours. we have the first lawsuit filed against carnival cruise lines. and also, get to the heart of the investigation which matters not just to the 4,000 people who were on board the carnival "triumph" but the 10 million americans that cruise every year. and that is, kate, how bad was this fire? if it was a bad fire, that's a very serious thing. fit wasn't bad, how come it was still able to take out five of the six generators, each of which are the size of a bus? on this ship? both of these questions are very troubling. we're going to be talking about that, about that lawsuit, and get some answers on that coming up at the top of the hour. back to you. >> a lot of questions still remaining in that investigation. "erin burnett out front" at the top of the hour. >>> here's a very different story. maybe you have a disaster kit, bottled water, canned food, flash
. some four years later, ex-governor sanford's running for congress. erin pike with us from washington. does mark sanford believe south carolinians are ready to forgive him? >> reporter: he acknowledges he made a serious mistake but is using the commercial to turn the pa page by asking voters for a second chance. he's reminding them he's known for being fiscally conservative. he's trying to shift the focus of the race to that record. his consultant told cnn because he's such a fighter, he's going to work to get either vote he can. because sanford is the most well-known candidate in the race, his campaign says anything sanford does will suck up all the oxygen in that race. his political team expects that voters will either vote for sanford or against him but not in favor of anyone else. sanford is running well ahead of them and almost certainly will make the runoff that's two weeks later. >> well, nice to see what happened to sanford has not undermined the ego of his political team. but he is going to be running against somebody who is more high-profile and that is the sister of comedia
and got stuck. erin pike is in wichita. how are you doing? >> reporter: very well. look, schools and universities have closed for the most part today. businesses were all closed yesterday around this area, but slowly opening back up today. the government got a delayed start to the day, but back open, too. and the roads are all open. the government is just urging drivers that if they're going to drive, they want to get all the though off the top of their cars so doesn't obstruct vision. but i have to tell you, a lot of people in kansas are really happy about all this snow because this is the third year of a really terrible drought here. and as you know, it's a big farming state, so a drought is a big problem. but it's bringing much needed moisture. the big concern, though, is with cattle ranchers. i spoke to a couple of them last night and their big concern is keeping cabs warm. it's cabbing season. these pictures are from frank harper. you can see there are probably cows in the snow, but they were also bringing these calves inside to warm them up. >> you don't normally see that.
